J: IT'S ANOTHER BIG WEEK IN THE WORLD OF TRYING TO GET FROM HERE TO THERE - AND WE MEAN BIG!

JY: AND FOR ONE OF THOSE TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS - HAWAII SUPERFERRY - PLANS FOR EXPANSION REMAIN AT FULL SPEED AHEAD.

J: ALSO PICKING UP STEAM THIS WEEK ARE MAUI'S BIKE TOUR COMPANIES. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A LONG TIME, THERE'S SOME GOOD NEWS FOR SOME OPERATORS.

JY: IN SPORTS, A THREE-YEAR WIN STREAK CERTAINLY QUALIFIES AS A DYNASTY. BUT CAN IT CONTINUE?. KALAPANA HAS WATER POLO HIGHLIGHTS IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS.

J: AND EARTH DAY IS ALMOST UPON US. HOLLY CHUNG HAS THE DETAILS ON THAT, AND AN AMAZING VARIETY OF ENTERTAINMENT CHOICE IN COMING ATTRACTIONS THIS WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS.

(intro-FF)

Open (TWO SHOT)

J: ALOHA EVERYONE, AND THANK YOU FOR JOINING US THIS WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JEFF KING.

JY: AND I'M JULIE Y. WITH THE TURMOIL THAT REMAINS IN THE WAKE OF THE SHUTDOWN OF TWO MAJOR AIRLINES IN THE LAST TWO WEEKS - IT ISN'T GETTING ANY EASIER TO GET AROUND.

(Turn to cam) ALOHA AND ATA AIRLINES - FOLLOWED BY SKYBUS AND FRONTIER AIRLINES ARE GONE. ONE OF THE COMMONLY BLAMED REASONS: HIGH FUEL PRICES. WELL, HAPPY LANDINGS OR NOT - BACK HERE ON THE GROUND, FUEL PRICES MAY SHUT DOWN TRAVEL PLANS FOR MANY AS WELL.

(vo) GAS PRICES IN HAWAII ARE THE HIGHEST IN THE NATION. AND GAS PRICES IN MAUI COUNTY ARE THE HIGHEST IN THE STATE. FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS WEEK, REGULAR UNLEADED GASOLINE ON MAUI TOPPED THE FOUR DOLLAR MARK COUNTY WIDE. IN REMOTE AREAS OF THE COUNTY, IT'S EVEN WORSE. LAST WEEK, THE TRIPLE-A FUEL GAUGE REPORT SHOWED REGULAR GAS ON LANA'I AT FOUR DOLLARS AND SEVENTY-ONE CENTS A GALLON. GAS IS ALSO NEAR THE FIVE-DOLLAR-A-GALLON MARK IN HANA.

(on-cam) STATEWIDE, THE AVERAGE PRICE THIS WEEK IS THREE DOLLARS AND SEVENTY CENTS A GALLON. BUT IN THE STATE'S MOST POPULATED AREAS, THE PRICE IS ONLY THREE-SIXTY. THE LAST TIME HAWAII SAW GAS PRICES THIS HIGH WAS WHEN PRICES TOPPED THREE DOLLARS AND SEVENTY CENTS A GALLON ON MAUI AFTER HURRICANES KATRINA AND RITA IN 2005 SHUT DOWN MAJOR MAINLAND REFINERIES IN THE GULF.

GOVERNOR LINDA LINGLE SAYS THERE IS NOTHING THE STATE CAN DO TO EASE THE CRUNCH BECAUSE IT'S NOT HAWAII REFINERIES JACKING UP THE PRICES - BUT THE ALMOST OUT-OF-CONTROL COST OF CRUDE OIL.

IT MAY BE OF LITTLE CONSOLATION WITH GAS AT MORE THAN FOUR DOLLARS A GALLON HERE ON MAUI, BUT THE AVERAGE COST FOR GAS IN CALIFORNIA IS TEN CENTS MORE THAN IT IS IN HAWAI'I.

(Superferry)(PiP-Superferry)

J: WITH FOUR AIRLINES CLOSING UP SHOP AND TWO OF THE LARGEST AIRLINES MERGING THE BECOME THE LARGEST, BUSINESS ANALYSTS ARE STILL TRYING TO SORT HOW IT WILL ALL SHAKE OUT. MEANWHILE, THE RETURN OF THE HAWAII SUPERFERRY - TWO WEEKS AHEAD OF SCHEDULE - SO FAR HASN'T BECOME AN INSTANT PROBLEM SOLVER. BUT SUPERFERRY OFFICIALS INSIST THEY'RE NOT WORRIED.

Terry O'Halloran Director, Business Development - Hawaii Superferry

TO01: "It is a slow ramp-up, we've had the light loads, but it's already starting to build and we're very happy with that. We've always taken a long-term view in our business model in start-up, so we're confident that it will ramp up as it already has and build to the levels that we're projecting."

WHILE NO SAILING SATE HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED FOR SERVICE BETWEEN O'AHU AND KAUA'I, O'HALLERAN NOTED THAT - SOON - HAWAII SUPERFERRY PLANS TO ADD A SECOND DAILY ROUNDTRIP BETWEEN KAHULUI AND HONOLULU BUT SAYS THAT'S NOT NECESSARILY TO FILL THE VOID LEFT BY THE LOSS OF AIR SERVICE.

TO02: "It's sad to see Aloha go. I really feel for the employees of Aloha. But we've always looked at ourselves as another alternative means of getting around Hawai'i. We're not going to replace airplanes. We're not going to replace barges, but we do provide a great alternative."

(ON-CAM) EVEN WITH AIRFARES AND GAS PRICES CLIMBING, HAWAII SUPERFERRY STILL HAS NOT RE-ADDED THEIR FUEL SURCHARGE. BUT IT'S NOT CHEAP, EITHER. A ROUND TRIP BETWEEN KAHULUI AND HONOLULU FOR TWO ADULTS - AND A CAR - INCLUDING THE UPGRADE TO RIDE IN THE HAHALUA LOUNGE, WILL COST YOU 378 DOLLARS AND 29 CENTS.

(Bikes)(PiP - Bike Group)

JY: IT WAS SEVEN MONTHS AGO WHEN A BICYCLE RIDER DIED IN HALEAKALA NATIONAL PARK WHILE ON A COMMERCIAL BIKE TOUR. IT WAS THE SECOND SUCH DEATH IN THE SPAN OF A YEAR. PARK SUPERINTENDENT MARILYN PARRIS IMMEDIATELY SHUT OUT ALL BIKE TOUR COMPANIES AND BEGAN AN INTENSIVE SAFETY INVESTIGATION. FOR THE FIRST TIME SOME OF THE DETAILS OF THAT STUDY ARE COMING OUT - AND IT'S NOT ALL BAD NEWS. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING HAS THE STORY.

(TAKE BIKE TOURS PKG) AFTER THAT TRAGIC ACCIDENT LEFT PARK SUPERINTENDENT MARILYN PARRIS NO CHOICE BUT TO STOP ALL BIKE TOUR COMPANIES FROM ENTERING THE PARK, AN INTENSE SAFETY REVIEW BEGAN THAT BROUGHT IN EXPERTS - AND OPINIONS - FROM ACROSS THE MAINLAND TO MAUI. DURING THE FIRST PART OF THE STANDDOWN, CRUISER PHILS VOLCANO RIDERS SHUT DOWN - BUT HE STAYED BUSY.

Phil Feliciano, Owner, Cruiser Phil's Volcano Riders

PF02: "ha ha. Baby sat the grandkids a lot! yeah."

TOUR COMPANIES BEGAN THEIR TOURS JUST OUTSDIE THE PARK GATE, ABOUT 10 MILES DOWN THE ROAD FROM THE SUMMIT. AMONG THE PRELIMINARY REPORT FINDINGS, IT'S MORE DANGEROUS TO COAST DOWN THE PARK ROAD FROM THE HALEAKALA SUMMIT THAN IT IS TO RIVER RAFT THE RAPIDS BENEATH MOUNT RAINER. PERHAPS A LITTLE SURPRISINGLY, NOW THAT CRUISER PHILS VANS TAKE RIDERS TO THE TOP FOR SUNRISE, THEN BACK TO THE MAIN GATE TO START THEIR DOWNHILL RIDE, HIS NEWER CUSTOMERS TEND TO AGREE WITH THAT REPORT.

PF03: "The newcomers, when they see the road from the summit, and as narrow as it is, they're actually happy they don't have to ride that road in the park. And that was a surprise to me."

FELICIANO - AND ANOTHER BIKE COMPANY MAUI DOWNHILL, WERE ALSO SURPRISED AT THE LASTET RELEASE OF THE REPORT THAT SHOWS EXTREMELY LOW ACCIDENT RATES. FOR MAUI DOWNHILL, THERE WERE ABOUT EIGHT BIKE ACCIDENTS PER THOUSAND RIDERS. FOR CRUISER PHIL'S, ABOUT SIX PER THOUSAND RIDERS. THE BEST WAS AMONG BIKE IT MAUI CUSTOMERS - WHERE ONLY ABOUT TWO RIDERS IN A THOUSAND EVER SUFFER A MISHAP - WHICH RANGES FROM A SKINNED ELBOW TO ANYTHING REQUIRING FIRST AID.

THE SUPERINTENDENT SAYS THE FINAL REPORT WILL BE THOROUGH AND WILL COVER ALL COMMERCIAL ACTIVITIES IN THE PARK. IT ISN'T EXPECTED TO BE COMPLETE FOR ANOTHER 17 MONTHS. WHEN CRUISER PHIL'S RESUMED BUSINESS IN MARCH - IT TOOK A WHILE TO GET THE BUSINESS BACK.

PF01: "It wasn't an instant boost in business. It happened sort of gradually. We lost a lot of business when we had to turn our guests over to another company to see the sunrise. So the hotels were a little leary booking with us. Now that we have our vans back in the park, most of them are coming back."

FELICIANO PREDICTED WHAT MAY HAPPEN WITH BIKE TOURS IN THE FINAL REPORT, FAILY CERTAIN IT WON'T BE A DOWNHILL RIDE LIKE BEFORE.

PF04: "Not just a downhill ride. We'll be forced to...we'll be able to make a lot of stops. Make it more of an informative tour. You know, educate the guests abouyt the national park."

BUT IF THAT RULING CAME BACK TODAY, AND IT SAID THINGS COULD BE JUST LIKE THE OLD DAYS, HE'D BE THE FIRST VAN UP THERE.

PF05: "Absolutely. Absolutely. I've been doing this for almost 25 years. And when you realize you're on a bicycle and you're on top of a mountain, above the clouds, you're on top of the world. And it's breathtaking."

AND WITH A COMMITMENT TO SAFETY - NOT TO MENTION THE ADDITIONAL THREE MILLION DOLLARS IN LIABILITY INSURANCE COVERAGE THEY'VE ADDED, ONE DAY THAT BREAKTAKING EXPERIENCE COULD HAPPEN AGAIN...FROM THE TOP. REPORTING FROM KAHULUI FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

(Victorino-TVR) (PiP-Victorino)

J: THERE'S ANOTHER RAY OF HOPE FOR A SEGMENT OF THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY OF MAUI. MAUI COUNTY COUNCILMEMBER MIKE VICTORINO SAYS TRANSIENT VACATION RENTALS WITHOUT PERMITS SHOULD NOT BE SUMMARILY SHUT DOWN.

VICTORINO SAYS MANY TVR OPERATORS ARE- QUOTE - "CAUGHT IN LEGAL LIMBO - UNQUOTE BECAUSE OF WHAT HE TERMS ARE CONFUSING AND CONTRADICTORY ENFORCEMENT POLICIES OF THE COUNTY. HE SAYS THEY SHOULDN'T BE PUNISHED. SO, HE IS PROPOSING LEGISLATION CALLING ON THE TAVARES ADMINISTRATION TO SUSPEND ENFORCEMENT AGAINST TVR OPERATORS UNTIL THE COUNCIL HAS HAD THE CHANCE TO REVIEW AND ENACT LEGISLATION THAT IS PENDING BEFORE THE PLANNING COMMITTEE. AND - WITH BUDGET REVIEW THE COUNCIL'S HIGHEST PRIORITY RIGHT NOW - THAT WILL PUT OFF A POSSIBLE NEW TVR LAW UNTIL JUNE.

VICTORINO'S RESOLUTION IS TITLED "URGING THE ADMINISTRATION TO TEMPORARILY SUSPEND ZONING ENFORCEMENT AGAINST TRANSIENT VACATION RENTALS." HE URGES MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC WHO SUPPORT HIS RESOLUTION TO WRITE TO OTHER COUNCIL MEMBERS TO VOICE THEIR SUPPORT. TO SEE A COPY OF THE RESOLUTION, VISIT MAUI TV NEWS DOT COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.

TOSS TO B BLOCK

JY: UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, SMALL BUSINESS LEADERS FROM MAUI COUNTY MAKE A BIG IMPRESSION ON THE STATE. WE'LL INTRODUCE YOU TO SOME OF THE BEST OF THE BEST WHEN WE COME BACK. AND HERE'S A HINT: YOU PROBABLY ALREADY KNOW MOST OF THEM.

J: AND NOW THAT THE MAYOR HAS SIGNED THE BILL APPROVING HONUA'ULA, WE'LL TELL YOU WHAT WILL LIKELY HAPPEN NEXT.

(SBA AWARDS) (PiP - Bev Gannon)

JY: THE HAWAII 2008 SMALL BUSINESS PERSON OF THE YEAR IS MAUI SUPER-CHEF BEV GANNON. WE FIRST TOLD YOU ABOUT THAT HONOR TWO WEEKS AGO ON MAUI TV NEWS. WELL, SHE ISN'T THE ONLY WINNER FROM MAUI.

(vo) LAST FRIDAY THE MAUI CHAMBER OF COMMERCE HELD A LUNCHEON HONORING SEVEN BUSINESS LEADERS FROM MAUI COUNTY FOR THEIR EXCELLENCE IN COMMERCE. MAUI TV NEWS WAS THERE.

A BIG TURNOUT AT KAMEHAMEHA COUNTRY CLUB TO HONOR THE MAUI COUNTY WINNERS OF THE 2008 SMALL BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION WINNERS. ONE BY ONE, EACH HONOREE ADDRESSED THE CROWD - WITH THE EXCEPTION OF BRENNAN PURTZER OF PACIFIC MEDIA IN KAUNAKAKAI WHO COULD NOT ATTEND.

SKY BARNHART'S WORK HAS APPEARED IN VIRTUALLY EVERY PRINTED PUBLICATION ON MAUI. WHILE, SHE SAID SHE FEELS A LITTLE FUNNY BEING ON THIS SIDE OF THE INTERVIEW, SHE ALSO SAID SHE FEELS LIKE A CHAMPION.

Sky Barnhart Schual, Maui County Business Journalist of the Year

SB01: "Yes I do.Actually I worked really hard to get to this point. Axctually it's a dream come true. I was nominated last year and I didn't feel like I was quite ready. This I thought 'this could be it. I'm ready to go for it. My life could be changing a lot in the next year 'cuz I'm having a baby, so this is the moment for me, I guess."

HERS HAS BEEN A LIFE-LONG PATH TOWARD BECOMING AN AWARD-WINNING WRITER.

SB02: "I think it has something to do with with a love of reading. Almost all good writers are huge readers. I've been reading since I was little. It just comes naturally that when you love to read you love to write and it all flows together."

SMALL BUSINESS JOURNALIST OF THE YEAR IS MAUI CHAMBER OF COMMERCE PRESIDENT PAMELA TUMPAP. SHE'S NOT A TRAINED WRITER - BUT WRITES HUNDREDS OF ARTICLES A YEAR FOCUSING ON BUSINESS IN MAUI COUNTY.

PT01: "You know every time I write, I always have an exciting issue to discuss. And because I'm not a trained writer, I don't try to adhere to a certain style. But I write from the sources I have and express the Chamber's view. Not everybody agrees with it, but that's the chamber's view, and I keep trying to write from that perspective."

(ON-CAM TAG) GANNON AND MORE THAN 30 OTHER ENTREPRENEURS WILL BE HONORED ON APRIL 30TH AT THE ANNUAL STATEWIDE SBA AWARDS LUNCHEON IN HONOLULU. AFTER THAT, THE MAUI CHEF BEGINS HER QUEST FOR THE NATIONAL TITLE OF SMALL BUSINESS PERSON OF THE YEAR - REPRESENTING THE STATE OF HAWAI'I.

(Honua'ula)(PiP-Jencks)

J: AMONG THOSE ATTENDING FRIDAY'S AWARDS WAS CHARLIE JENCKS - THE OWNER'S REPRESENTATIVE OF THE HONUA'ULA HOUSING DEVELOPMENT PROJECT IN SOUTH MAUI. AFTER SEVEN YEARS OF HEARINGS, NEGOTIATIONS, PUBLIC TESTIMONY AND DEBATE, THE PROJECT RECEIVED PHASE ONE APPROVAL FROM THE MAUI COUNTY COUNCIL AND MAYOR CHARMAINE TAVARES. WE ASKED JECNKS WHAT HAPPENS NEXT AND WHAT WILL BE THE FIRST VISIBLE SIGNS OF THE PROJECT'S PROGRESS.

(Take Jencks VO/SOT)

Charlie Jencks - Owners Rep, Honua'ula

CJ01: "The firt physical signs of progress will be 250 affordable homes in North Kihei - 125 affordable apartments and 125 owner-occupied. Then comes the widening of Pi'ilani Highway and the development of infrastructure - water, sewer and utilities before we begin building homes. It'll be about a year before the North Kihei homes begin going up and about two years before any other oprogress begins."

(YOUTH ART WINNERS) (PiP;"Ukulele")

JY: IF YOU'RE AN ART LOVER - WHAT A GREAT TIME TO BE ON MAUI! ART MAUI 2008 JUST WRAPPED UP LAST WEEK AND A LITTLE LATER ON THIS SHOW WE'LL SHOW YOU SOME STUNNING "FOUND-ITEM" ART. BUT THIS WEEKEND THERE WAS ONE MAUI STUDENT WHO FOUND HIMSELF A WINNER IN THE 2008 MAUI COUNTY YOUNG ARTIST'S SHOWCASE.

(FF-CG-VO) CASEY ARCANGEL WAS RECOGNIZED SATURDAY FOR HIS PIECE, TITLED "THE MUSIC OF LIFE," DURING MAUI CULTURE AND ARTS DAY AT THE MAUI MALL. THE THEME WAS "A REFLECTION OF YOUR COMMUNITY," AND THE YOUNG ARTIST SAYS THAT IN HIS NEIGHBORHOOD, NOTHING REFLECTS LIFE BETTER THAN THE UKULELE. HE SAYS IT'S THE MOST BASIC INSTRUMENT IN HAWAII AND ALMOST EVERYBODY CAN PLAY IT.

(on-cam) FOR HIS EFFORT CASEY RECEIVED A 300-DOLLAR CASH PRIZE AND HIS ART WILL BE FEATURED IN THE 2008 YOUNG ARTISTS' SHOWCASE IN THE NATION'S CAPITAL. IF YOU'D LIKE TO SEE THE WINNING ENTRY - AND ALL OF THIS YEAR'S ENTRIES, YOU CAN VISIT THE MAUI COUNTY BUSINESS RESOURCE CENTER IN THE MAUI MALL BETWEEN NOW AND THE END OF THIS MONTH.

(Bronze Turtle (PiP-Turtle Sculpture)

J: AND IT'S A WORK OF ART ALMOST NOBODY HAS SEEN - BUT THERE SURE WERE A LOT OF FOLKS TALKING ABOUT IT.

(ff-vo-cg) THE ALMOST LIFE-SIZE BRONZE SCULPTURE OF A NESTING SEA TURTLE STOLEN FROM THE KEALIA POND COASTAL BOARDWALK TWO MONTHS AGO HAS BEEN RETURNED. THE WORK OF ART, CREATED AND DONATED BY MAUI ARTIST DALE ZARELLA, IS NEARLY FIVE FEET LONG AND WEIGHS AROUND 140 POUNDS. STILL DETERMINED THIEVES WRENCHED IT FROM IT'S ANCHORING AT THE END OF THE BOARDWALK IN FEBRUARY.

(on-cam) KEALIA POND NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE MANAGER GLYNNIS NAKAI SAID THE SCULPTURE WAS INSTALLED AS A SURPRISE TREAT AT THE END OF THE NOT-YET-OFFICIALLY OPENED KEALIA BOARDWALK. IT WAS INTENDED TO HELP EDUCATE FOLKS ABOUT SEA TURTLE NESTING. NAKAI ADDS THAT SHE'LL GO BACK INTO HER KIOSK - PROBABLY WITH A BIT MORE SECURE FASTENING - WHEN THE BOARDWALK FINALLY OPENS.

(Toss to C Block)

JY: UP NEXT IN SPORTS, THE LADY LUNAS HAVE BEEN AN UNSINKABLE FORCE IN WATER POLO. KALAPANA IS UP NEXT TO BRING YOU HIGHLIGHTS OF THEIR REMATCH AGAINST THE ONLY TEAM TO BEAT THEM IN THE LAST THREE YEARS. THAT UP NEXT IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS.

J: THEN, HOLLY CHUNG JOINS US WITH HIGHLIGHTS FOR EARTH DAY ON MOLOKA'I, A HO'OLAULE'A UPCOUNTRY AND SESAME STREET IN WAILUKU IN COMING ATTRACTIONS WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.


(sports) (PiP-Sports)

K: IT'S A BIG WEEK FOR WAHINE IN THE WIDE WORLD OF SPORTS ON MAUI. ALOHA EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M KALAPANA.

ONE OF THE PERHAPS-QUIETER "DYNASTIES" IN THE MAUI INTERSCHOLASTIC LEAGUE IS THE ABSOLUTE DOMINANCE BY ONE TEAM IN ONE SPORT. IN FACT, THIS WEEKS MARKS THREE YEARS SINCE THE LADY LUNAS OF LAHAINALUNA HIGH SCHOOL HAVE LOST AN M-I-L WATER POLO MATCH. AND TO MARK THE ANNIVERSARY OF THEIR LAST LEAGUE LOSS ON APRIL 14, 2005, WE TAKE YOU TO THE SATURDAY NIGHT MATCH AGAINST THE TEAM THAT BEAT THEM WAY BACK THEN - THE LADIES OF KING KEKAULIKE.

(VO) THE LUNAS SEEMED TO HAVE REVENGE ON THEIR MIND. EARLY IN THE SECOND PERIOD THEY ALREADY HELD A COMMANDING 10-TO-ONE LEAD WHEN MICHELLE FULLER CAROMS THIS ONE INTO THE GOAL OFF GOALIE DESI DELUZE. ONE OF THE STRENGTHS OF LAHAINALUNA IS THEIR AMAZING DEPTH - WITH A ROSTER OF 22 ACTIVE PLAYERS - COMPARED TO JUST 12 FOR NA ALII. THE OTHER REASON IS DEFENSE. WATCH AS MARIAH GILL RELENTLESSLY PURSUES KING K'S GIANNA GARRETT - FORCING A PASS THAT THE LUNAS QUICKLY INTERCEPT. BACK DOWN THE POOL, MOANA TUIPULOTU PASSES TO A WIDE OPEN NATALIE AUSTIN WHO EASILY SCORES AND SUDDENLY ITS 12-2 IN THE SECOND QUARTER.

LAHAINALUNA'S SWARMING DEFENSE WORKS IN NA ALII'S FAVOR THIS TIME AS HALEY MULVHILL EMERGES, SKIES AND FINDS THE LUNA NET FOR A SCORE. A LUCKY SHOT? MAYBE, BUT WHY NOT TRY AGAIN. MULVHILL IS ENCOURAGED TO FIRE A LONG ONE AND GETS IT PAST THE FINGERTIPS OF LUNA GOALIE EMILY SHATTENBURG.

SECOND HALF ACTION AND LAHAINALUNA BOUNCES ONE OFF THE GOAL POST. THE BALL DISAPPEARS, TUIPOLUTU SAYS "SHE'S HOLDING IT," AND GETS A LAUGH WHEN THE REF REMINDS HER THAT THE GOALIE GETS TO DO THAT. LUNAS GET THE BALL ANYWAY AND A WIDE OPEN ALEX SMITH GETS THE GOAL OFF THE FINGERTIPS OF DELUZE. WOW, YOU WANT TO TELL ME THIS ISN'T A CONTACT SPORT? AND, FOLKS - THE ENTIRE POOL IS THE DEEP END.

FOURTH QUARTER COMING UP. A RELAXED LAHAINALUNA CREW GETS FINAL INSTRUCTIONS, AND KING KEKAULIKE GETS AGGRESSIVE BY SACRIFICING THEIR GOALIE TO ADD A DEFENSIVE PLAYER. THEY GET AGGRESSIVE ON OFFENSE TOO AS MULVHILL HURLS A ROCK - BUT GETS A BRICK! WITH TIME RUNNING DOWN, NA ALII'S BENCH IS INTO IT! LUNAS STEAL THE PASS AND - MAYBE ALL THAT YELLING WORKED BECAUSE KING K GOALIE DESI DELUZE GOBBLES THIS ONE.

THE LADY LUNAS PUT ON A SCORING CLINIC AS GINA BELLA MATAFA PASSES TO JENAE KRUEK WHO PUTS IT RIGHT IN.

FINAL SCORE IN THIS ONE WAS NOT AS CLOSE AT IT MAY SOUND, AS LAHAINALUNA WINS IT 20 TO 10.

(ON-CAM) LADY LUNAS REMAIN UNBEATEN ATOP THE M-I-L AND WILL REPRESENT THE LEAGUE AT THE STATE TOURNAMENT ON O'AHU MAY SEVENTH THROUGH THE 10TH.

THE LADY LUNAS ARE MAKING QUITE A SPLASH ON THE SOFTBALL FIELD AS WELL. AFTER SUFFERING THEIR FIRST LOSS OF THE SEASON LAST FRIDAY TO THE BALDWIN BEARS, THEY CAME CHARGING BACK ON SATURDAY. TIFFANY BONIFACIO ALLOWED JUST THREE HITS AS LAHAINALUNA SHUT OUT THE LADY BEARS SEVEN TO NOTHING.

(ff-vo-cG)) LAHAINA SITS ATOP THE DIVISION ONE STANDINGS AT 11 AND ONE. THE DEFENDING CHAMPS ARE IN SECOND PLACE AT NINE AND THREE. MAUI HIGH IS IN THIRD AT EIGHT AND FOUR. KING KEKAULIKE AND KAMEHAMEHA MAUI ARE BOTH AT 500. IN DIVISION TWO, THE PINE LASSES ARE ALSO AT 500, MOLOKAI IS 2 AND 10 AND HANA IS STILL WINLESS.

(ON-CAM) AND WE MENTIONED IT WAS A GREAT WEEK TO BE A WOMAN IN SPORTS ON MAUI. CONGRATULATIONS TO BOBBI KOKX, WHO SHOT A TOTAL 149 OVER TWO DAYS TO WIN THE JIM SANDERS MAUI WOMEN'S GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP. KOKX SHOT A 76 IN THE SECOND ROUND AT PUKALANI COUNTRY CLUB SATURDAY TO CLAIM A ONE-STROKE VICTORY OVER DESIREE TING.

AND THAT'S A LOOK AT SPORTS FOR THIS WEEK. BE SURE TO LET US KNOW IF YOUR TEAM HAS A SEASON OR SPECIAL SPORTING EVENT COMING UP. SEND YOUR NOTICES TO SPORTS AT MAUITVNEWS-DOT-COM. WE'LL DO OUR VERY BEST TO GET A CREW OUT TO CAPTURE THE ACTION. FOR MAUI TV NEWS I'M KALAPANA. NOW HERE'S HOLLY CHUNG WITH COMING ATTRACTIONS.

(STUDENT ART) (PiP-Student Art Logo)

J: "CELEBRATING THE ARTIST IN US." THAT'S THE THEME OF THE NEWEST EXHIBIT AT THE SCHAEFER INTERNATIONAL GALLERY AT THE MAUI ARTS AND CULTURAL CENTER. IT'S FREE. IT'S VERY INTERESTING - AND EVERYTHING THAT YOU FIND INSIDE IS CREATED FROM THINGS THE YOUNG ARTISTS FOUND OUTSIDE.

( tAKE STUDENT ART PKG) QUICK, WHAT'S THIS? RIGHT! IT'S THE UPPER PROPELLER FOR THE FLYING CONTRAPTION - AND HERE'S THE LOWER PROPELLOR OF A DEVICE THAT TOOK FLIGHT IN THE IMAGINATION OF SOME VERY CREATIVE MAUI KEIKI.

Susana Browne, Education Director, MACC

SB01: "This is our annual student art exhibit. It's called 'Celebrating the Artist in Us.' This was the very first exhibit shown in this gallery 15 years ago."

THIS OLDEST SHOW AT THE SHAEFFER GALLERY FEATURS THE YOUNGEST ARTISTS FROM MAUI. EACH YEAR, THE SHOW ALTERNATES BETWEEN HIGH SCHOOL ART AND THIS YEAR'S SHOW, FEATURING THE WORKS OF STUDENTS FROM KINDERGARTEN THROUGH 8TH GRADE.

sb02: "There are 13 schools represented and there are 800 kids participated from those 13 schools."


Neida Bangerter, Exhibits Manager, MACC

NB01: "We invited all teachers in maui County to participate. Many of the teachers that did came to a workshop in January where the focus was in creating art based on found and recycled items. The other other important thing is collaboration and I think that's important because it's not just the individual art like a landscape or portrait or the sculpture. You're seeing all of those themes wrapped up into one piece."

AFTER THAT WORKSHOP 12 WEEKS AGO, EACH PARTICIPATING STUDENT HAD TO FIND THE MATERIALS THAT WERE TO GO INTO THEIR CREATION. THE EVIDENCE IS CLEAR THEY FOUND A LOT OF STUFF. ONCE IT WAS ALL COLLECTED AT SCHOOL, THE GROUP BRAINSTORMED TO COME UP WITH A THEME, A DESIGN AND A PLAN. THEN THEY WENT TO WORK.

A LARGE CLASS PROJECT FROM KULA ELEMENTARY FILLED RECYCLED CAFETERIA GLOVES WITH PAGES FROM CATALOGS MADE FROM PAPER THAT CANNOT BE RECYCLED. THE ART MADE A STATEMENT AND SO DID EACH ARTIST.

Ann Ashley, 4th Grade Teacher, Kula Elementary

AA01: "We had a lot of these gloves left over from a food service project at school. And each child had to come up with a way to fill each glove with the crumpled paper, then they wrote messages on them but it's hard to see the messages."

IT'S CERTAINLY NOT HARD TO SEE THE EYE OF COLOR AND CREATIVITY STUDENTS HAVE. WHAT WOULD YOU CALL A DELOREAN-LOOKING SPORTS MADE FROM ALTOIDS CANS? HOW ABOUT "CARTOID?" THERE ARE HANDS-ON EXHIBITS, AND ROLLING WORKS OF ART - SOME IN PROGRESS - OTHERS ALREADY ON DISPLAY. AND THIS WEEKEND IS A PLAY DAY, WHEN YOU CAN BRING YOUR KEIKI TO THE SCAEFER GALLERY TO CREATE THEIR OWN WORKS OF ART. AND WHEN THE 2008 EXHIBITION ENDS, IT'LL ALL BE AVAILABLE.

AA02: "I'm sure one of the students' parents would love to have this piece in their living room.(SMILE)"

(On-cam tag) ONCE AGAIN THE EXHIBIT IS OPEN DAILY UNTIL THE 27TH FROM 11 TO FIVE.

JY: ONE MORE THING BEFORE WE GO, WE WANT TO CORRECT SOMETHING WE REPORTED ON LAST WEEK'S EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS. WE TOLD YOU THAT MAUI ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY HAD BEEN VOTED THE "BEST PLACE TO WORK IN HAWAII" BY HAWAII BUSINESS MAGAZINE. WELL, WHILE MOST WHO WORK THERE MIGHT AGREE, TECHNICALLY, THE ORGANIZATION ACTUALLY CAME IN AT NUMBER TEN, STATEWIDE. WHERE THEY DID COME IN AS NUMBER ONE WAS THE BEST NON-PROFIT BUSINESS TO WORK FOR, AND THE BEST PLACE TO WORK ON MAUI.

J: AND THAT'S IT FOR THIS WEEK'S SHOW. WE INVITE YOU TO VISIT OUR WEBSITE AT MAUITVNEWS-DOT-COM FOR PLAYBACK OF THIS PROGRAM ANY TIME FOR THE NEXT FOUR WEEKS. YOU CAN ALSO FIND DETAILS ON ORDERING DVD COPIES OF ANY EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS. YOU'LL ALSO FIND DAILY UPDATES OF BREAKING NEWS AND LINKS TO IMPORTANT STORIES AND NEWSMAKERS.

JY: AND THERE'S LOTS MORE INFORMATION ON THE WEBSITE, TOO, SO PLEASE, CHECK US OUT AT MAUITVNEWS-DOT-COM. AND UNTIL NEXT WEEK, ALOHA.

J: ALOHA
